Watcha Making For The 4th?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I was planning on what to make for the 4th of July, so I thought we could start an idea thread?!?

We always have a church BBQ (hamburgers and hotdogs) and potluck. Dishes I don't have to keep hot or cold or that get eaten fast are always nice. It seems there are lots of salads already so I like to think of what kids like to eat too ( mine are grown ;):( ). I only need to pick 1 or 2.

Thoughts so far are:

cupcakes with M&M's on top

baked beans

chips and soda pop

layered bean dip

brownies

ice cream

apple crisp

fruit tray

deviled eggs

Kabobs with pineapple, cheese, olives, etc. on a toothpick

So what ideas do you have?

Layered Taco salad

This is my favorite and it is rare there is anything is left to bring home.

Ooh, I did a layered bean dip last Sunday for Father's Day, and it went fast.

I put pieces of fresh basil leaves instead of cilantro and it gave it a really different, but yummy taste.

I'm not doing anything special. Canned baked beans, maybe some hamburgers. Raw veggies. Might make one of the new Betty Crocker mixes I have. I don't personally eat dessert so I don't care if we have it or not.
